New Supermodel Accusations: Bill Cosby Drugged Me!
Another bombshell in the Bill Cosby scandal.
Beverly Johnson, the first black supermodel, claims that Cosby drugged her in the 1980's with a spiked cappuccino but she escaped before he could sexually assault her.
In an explosive, just-released article on the Vanity Fair website, she writes: “As I felt my body go completely limp, my brain switched into automatic-survival mode. That meant making sure Cosby understood that I knew exactly what was happening at that very moment.”
She says she cursed him, saying: "You are a [expletive] aren't you? I recall his seething anger at my tirade and then him grabbing me by my left arm hard and yanking all 110 pounds of me down a bunch of stairs.”
She claims the enraged Cosby put her in a cab and sent her home.
HLN host Nancy Grace told INSIDE EDITION, "Beverly Johnson was the top of the heap of the then supermodels in her heyday. So, the fact that she is so credible and that she is out there, she is recognizable, she is out there as a household name and / or face, adds a lot of credibility to the other 21 and counting women's claims about Cosby."
Meanwhile, comedian Chris Rock made a shocking joke about the star quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers, comparing him to none other than Cosby.
Rock joked, “I'm going to say something really bad about Roethlisberger. He's the original Cosby.”
Ben Roethlisberger, winner of two Super Bowls, was accused of sexual assault by two women in 2009 and 2010, but was never charged.
In a 2009 news conference, the quarterback said, “The allegations against me are reckless and false.”
Chris Rock made the crack in Baltimore on a promotional tour for his new movie, Top Five.
Rock joked, "He's the original Cosby. That's horrible, horrible. It's gonna go everywhere."

Cosby has perviously denied all allegations made against him.
